Test shots from the Galaxy Tab

Photos taken this afternoon at the Queen’s Park Savannah and Botanical Gardens in Port of Spain, Trinidad. It has to be said that the huge size of the Tab and the fact you have to touch the screen to snap the pic does not make for ┬ávery steady shots. I subsequently realized that I had the Tab set to a resolution of 800 X 600 instead of 2048 X 1536. That explains the low quality.

Quick update from my phone

I bought an app for my Nokia that lets me blog from my phone so I am giving it a quick run. As much as I love my E series keyboard this entry will be short as it still a bit too fiddly to type on for long stretches.

I can report that I am on my third week on Champix and , as much as I am loath to admit it, it really works. I haven’t smoked a single ciggy for going on two weeks now. In what is a completely unrelated event I have also been walking 7 km most evenings, While I am sure there are health benefits the main advantage is just the thinking time. The mechanical act of walking seems to help me focus – mind you the eye candy on the walk is nice too.

Still, despite what the health Nazis say, I feel not one whit better. It must be said that I rue the fact I put smoking on hold just when I mastered the art of looking piss elegant while doing it.
